For use with all our plastic binding products. Fast-drying, high-strength clear acrylic cement that bonds plastics to porous surfaces.

Clamps or binding tapes can be released from the glued bindings in an hour or less, and the bindings can be scraped flush after about 12-hours. 1.5-ounce tube.

Weld-On Cement is best for plastic bindings, or for plastic and wood bindings used together. It sets extremely quickly, so practice on scrap to get a feel for it, and don't try to glue long sections at once. It's thin enough to be worked into crevices. On unfinished instruments, clean up residue with acetone.

WARNING! Contains methylene chloride, methyl ethyl ketone and acrylic resin. These solvents will damage nitrocellulose lacquer and other finishes. Exercise care when using on finished instrument.

Good Plastic Glue choice

By Gary Drinkwater from Baton Rouge, La
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, October 24, 2012

Glue set fast, so use it in small increments. For bigger pieces have 4 hands to move quickly. Bonded great! Will use again.

Easy as pie.

This stuff is great. I just did my first binding job with it and it worked very well. The only problem I had was doing the purfling. After I put all the strips together it was hard to shape it. The strips did not hold and separated. This may have been something I did wrong but the glue did not hold when I had to bend around the tight corners of the horns, but was easily repaired afterwards. Other than that, it came out awesome!! I was not made aware that you could get the purfling already done, Duh!! That would have helped a bunch.

Why would you sell this?

By Chris Sereday from O'Fallon, Illinois

This stuff is horrible. There is no easy way to apply this. The glue dries in the tip of the tube and when you go to apply, it just gushes out. My hands are covered in this stuff. The glue so fast and you have to do it in sections, which it says no where on the page you order it. It does say it on a completely different page about binding. Why would you put the instructions on how to use this product on a different page that tells you binding details? The only positives are that it does hold and doesn't soak into the wood much so it's not too hard to get extra off. After getting so many quality products from stewmac, I don't know why they would sell this glue in a tube.

Dries Too Fast

By fanfab4 from New Jersey
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, May 09, 2012

Bought this for binding but tried it to glue on a plastic headstock overlay on a Harmony Sovereign . I had to apply to a large area and the glue dried before I had a chance to clamp it .
Should be fine for binding if instructions are followed and glue is applied a section at a time and pressed onto guitar . I didn't look at the online instructions until after my first try .

Good stuff

I have been using this for over 15 years, never had any problems with it.

Great stuff for first time user

By Danny Clayburn from Albuquerque, NM
(Customer's Reviews) Friday, February 24, 2012

Used this for my 1st complete binding job on a Tricone neck. Make sure the channel is clean & work in small increments, use the binding tape and/or rubber bands and you should get great results. I used a brush to better control how much went on and it worked great, but each brush was frozen stiff after about 5 minutes or so.

catch it before it runs

nice stuff, but it does run like syrup, best to mask at the binding line

Wood Absorbtion

By JTE Guitar Works from La Pine, Oregon
(Customer's Reviews) Wednesday, February 08, 2012

I've used this in the past with no problem except, the stuff absorbs into the wood. I would say this is great for repair work where the wood has something sealing the wood pours. On raw wood watch out for absorbtion into the wood. Also the aplicator tube is out dated. A syringe type applicator would be better. Also take warnings seriously, gloves, mask, and ventalation are important using this product.

Better than CA

By Lefty Kevin from Canton, MI

Tried CA Gel first and didn't like the results. The Weld-On was much easier to use and not as messy. Good working time while still sticking.
